The Senate trial of former President Donald Trump should be an exercise in futility; there is no constitutional framework to impeach a former president.  However , that said, when both wings of the UniParty bird are working in mutually beneficial alignment, anything can happen.  [Senate Trial Rules – Impeachment #2 HERE]

Senators Schumer and McConnell have agreed to a set of rules for the impeachment trial.  The rules will be voted on tomorrow, along with an initial set of four hours of arguments on the constitutionality of the entire fiasco beginning… and then a vote.

WASHINGTON DC – The agreement between Schumer and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, in conjunction with the House impeachment managers and Trump’s lawyers, will allow up to four hours of arguments on Tuesday about the constitutionality of putting a former president on trial. The Senate will then vote on whether the trial is constitutional. (more)

Assuming the trial goes forward… Then beginning Wednesday, each side will have up to 16 hours to lay out their case, spread out over two days per side. Senators will then have four hours to pose questions to the House managers and Trump’s attorneys.
